Can I draw unemployment if I'm fired for not learning the job quick enough? CA.
I have started a permament part time job in a busy eight doctor office at the front desk registration. I have only been there 2 weeks and just a half day actually registering patients. My manager told the full time girls to not assist me and to let me do it on my own. I was a nervous wreck because she had spoken with me earlier in the day about four or five mistakes I had made the first week and then that afternoon she puts me at the front desk telling the other girls to not help me. I feel that I'm not adequately trained and any mistakes will be used to fire me. Will I be able to draw unemployement if they say Im not performing...
Discouraged in CA....
It's very likely you will. Misconduct is not inability. Remember these words: I did the job to the best of my ability.
Just to be on the safe side .. I'd talk to her about providing adequate training.
Did you have any similar experience beforehand that the employer may have used to base their hiring decision on? There could be a problem if you overstated your qualifications ..
